Description


Vanilla RootBox is built straight from RootBox sources and always carries a very light installation with no extra/useless apps. This means, you can enjoy a pure Android experience combined with AOKP/CM/PA features. Every RootBox releases are stable and always up to the challenge for a daily usage. If you're wondering how this ROM differs from any other AOKP roms out there, I only have one thing to say: Try it yourself and choose the one that meets your requirements.

1.6 is for leaked JB

You have to flash 1.6 because it is jelly bean and not ICS

Sent from my GT-I9300 using xda app-developers app

i think 1.6 is for leaked JB

v1.6 versions support ONLY Samsung JB leaks. They won't work on ICS or CM9/10. Similarly, v1.5 or earlier versions will not work on Samsung JB Leaks. v1.5.4-cm10 is only for CM10 based ROMs which have fixed mali/memory leak. If you are on ICS or an earlier version of CM10 use v1.5.3.

    Unmount /system in recovery and try again.

    Unmount, then try to install, or
    unmount, mount then install? sorry for low knowledge :-/

    Unmount, then try to install.

    I have problem flashing this rom...missing symlink...anyone know why?

    Have you tried what i posted 5 posts above yours?

    Unmount system then flash?

    Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk 2


    Could you explain to me what is unmount system? Thanks :D

    Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk 2

    In CWM, there should be a menu item "Mounts and storage", where you can mount and unmount partitions.

    In there, unmount /system. That solved the symlink error for me.

    Thanks i will try it...one last question, unmount system doesnt mean wipe internal memory or anything right?because i dont have external sdcard :D

    Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk 2

    It will wipe nothing, it just detaches the /system partition from the file hierarchy. The partition will be remounted during flash or on the next reboot. Or manually in CWM, of course.

    Thanks again :D

    Seriously? I got over 10 threads to monitor per day and you guys want me to scroll into all this useless posts just to find the few posts that actually report bugs? I think you guys have no clue what a development thread is and you guys forget that I have a life and don't have time for all this uselessness. This isn't a support thread, specially when non-rom issues are being discussed throughout 10 posts.

    Closing Thread.

    Actually its not, its just a guy compiling newest sources from githup into a base already made by bajee11
    i wont call that development..
    bugs dont gets fixed nor new things happens.

    and its really sad because this rom was nearly there!

    Latest nightly on RootBox's Goo.im was 3 days ago. So go get your eyes checked. I already announced to everyone that I'm taking a break until I'm done with my university exams. So calm down and stop spamming the development thread. Actually, I'll simply close this until I'm back.
